Pearl T. is a shy, younger gal. Here at HSC, she has been a little more reserved but once she is comfortable, she is a snuggle bug! Pearl T. would do best in a quieter environment that will allow her personality to bloom and grow. 

Pearl has been at HSC since January 2018 and we would like to see her find her forever home. If Pearl T. sounds like she would fit into your household, come meet her at HSC today!

Community Cats Update: Kitten Season Trapping

During the month of June, 73 cats were brought in through our TNR program. Among them were 18 cats from a south Charlotte apartment complex. The buildings were overrun with both adult cats and kittens - kitten season is still going!

Trapping is on-going at this site because some adult cats continue to avoid the traps. There is also a large number of kittens that were too young for surgery and well-hidden by their mothers from our attempts to trap them. Stay tuned for updates on these South Charlotte cats and learn about how you can help join our efforts.

For more information on how you can help TNR efforts in your neighborhood, 
contact our Community Cat Coordinator at  704-494-7717 or email
